[Movies] Christopher Nolan Talks About If Man of Steel Will Be Similar to The Dark Knight Posted by Larry Csonka on 12.04.2012
And does he think The Dark Knight Rises ending was radical?
- Christopher Nolan recently spoke about his role as producer on Man of Steel and more. Here are the highlights…
On if Man of Steel will be similar to The Dark Knight: "Well, somewhat. But I wouldn't want people to think we're doing for Superman what we did for Batman. It's very much Zack's film and I think people are going to love what he's done," he continued. "I think it's really remarkable to take on that character. Superman is a completely different character than Batman. So you can't in anyway use the same template. But David Goyer had this, I thought, brilliant way to make Superman relatable and relevant for his audience. Zack has built on that and I think it's incredible what he's putting together. He's got a lot of finishing to do on that. Superman is the biggest comic book character of them all and he needs the biggest possible movie version which is what Zack's doing. It's really something."
On if the ending to The Dark Knight Rises was "radical" "Radical? Hmm, yes, perhaps for the comic book fans it was. But I think it was appropriate ending for the story we set out to tell."
